LatinX in Animation (LXiA) is excited to announce its first-ever Animation Day as part of the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival‘s 20th edition. Co-founded in 1997 by actor, director and producer Edward James Olmos, LALIFF is a high-profile event that showcases the talents and perspectives of Latinx filmmakers from all over the world.

Animation, however, had not yet had its standalone day at the event — until now. Including sponsors such as Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, Animation Day’s packed line-up boasts exclusive premieres, panel discussions, an animated shorts contest and master classes.

From June 2-6, the audience will have access to LXiA’s first-ever Animated Shorts Program, presented by Cartoon Network Studios’ recently announced animated shorts content initiative Cartoon Cartoons.
